ENVE MSERIES wheels - first look

Less weight yet more strength and improved tubeless performance

ENVE has today announced its MSERIES rims, a collection that is divided into four rim sizes that cover everything from cross-country racing to downhill riding.

All MSERIES rims are said to hold various improvements when compared to the company’s previous generation rims, including reduced weight and significant gains in impact resistance.

A new ‘hookless’ bead design has also been implemented to create a more reliable seal for tubeless applications. Lead Engineer Brett Satterthwaite said: “Our beadless hook design has performance implications that include better tubeless performance, pinch-flat resistance and impact durability. It is a design that truly plays to the strengths of full carbon construction.”

Range overview

Each of the MSERIES wheels will be available as rim only or complete build options, with pricing still to be announced.

  • Hole count: 28
  • Internal width: 21mm

The M60 is aimed at enduro/trail riders, but its low weight means that it’s also an option for cross-country riders. It's available in 650b and 29in sizes, and there is also a choice between 28- and 32-hole rims.

The M70 is aimed at the enduro market, but is made for those who like to make the most of the descents and would rather stack than take a chicken run! It has a lot in common with its bigger brother, the M90, and is available to fit all three wheel sizes.

Stiffer and stronger than any ENVE rim to date, the M90 tubeless rim once again aims to set a benchmark in performance and durability. It’s available in 650b and 26in options, both with a 32 spoke count.

  • Claimed weight: 509g (650b), 487g (26in)

Colour options

ENVE is offering six off-the-shelf decal colour options for the MSERIES rims, as well as the option of a full custom decal where you get to choose a primary and secondary colour.

The new MSERIES rims are currently landing at authorised dealers and will also be available on select complete bike models from ENVE’s OEM Partners: Cannondale, Santa Cruz Bicycles, Turner and Intense.
